The quartet known as Great Time gift us with their latest record "Dutchie Mayne" that merges neo-soul with lo-fi hip-hop sensibilities. Starting off with a soulful melodic introduction, the beat switches for the emcee Mike Larry Draw to paint a touching picture about his inner struggles and then some.
According to the band, the record was actually a beat left to decay alone in their beats folder, but after an impromptu session with Philly-based singer Kingsley Ibeneche the track got a whole new life alongside rapper Mike Larry Draw.
The Great Time band is made up of Zack Hartmann, Donnie Spackman, and Jill Ryan, with Mike Haldeman and Rahm Silverglade. They built a recording studio on a farm outside Philly, where they live and produce for themselves and other bands. They plan to tour their new record throughout the US this summer.
